  • Biochemical and Biological Effects of Organotinsby Alessandra Pagliarani; Fabiana Trombetti; Vittoria Ventrella

    Bentham Science Publishers 2012; US$ 44.00

    Organotins are widespread contaminants especially of water environments. Their chemically versatile structure makes organotin compounds able to bind to a variety of biomolecules thus widely affecting biological functions. Trisubstituted molecules, namely tributyltin (TBT) and triphenyltin (TPhT), have been widely employed in antifouling paints and... more...

  • Water Soluble Vitaminsby Olaf Stanger

    Springer 2011; US$ 279.00

    The discovery of vitamins in the early 1900s, their later chemical characterization and the clarification of pivotal metabolic functions are sequential aspects of a brilliant chapter in the history of modern nutritional sciences and medicine. The name, derived from "vital-amines", indicates their elementary metabolic key functions in human... more...

  • Multistate GTPase Control Co-translational Protein Targetingby Xin Zhang

    Springer 2011; US$ 129.00

    Proteins act as macromolecular machinery that mediate many diverse biological processes - the molecular mechanisms of this machinery has fascinated biologists for decades. Analysis of the kinetic and thermodynamic features of these mechanisms could reveal unprecedented aspects of how the machinery function and will eventually lead to a novel understanding... more...

  • Phosphoinositides IIby Tamas Balla; Matthias Wymann; John D. York

    Springer 2012; US$ 279.00

    Phosphoinositides play a major role in cellular signaling and membrane organization. During the last three decades we have learned that enzymes turning over phosphoinositides control vital physiological processes and are involved in the initiation and progression of cancer, inflammation, neurodegenerative, cardiovascular, metabolic disease and more.... more...

  • Protein Folding and Misfoldingby Heinz Fabian; Dieter Naumann

    Springer 2011; US$ 149.00

    Infrared spectroscopy is a new and innovative technology to study protein folding/misfolding events in the broad arsenal of techniques conventionally used in this field. The progress in understanding protein folding and misfolding is primarily due to the development of biophysical methods which permit to probe conformational changes with high kinetic... more...

  • DNA Topoisomerases and Cancerby Yves Pommier

    Springer 2011; US$ 249.00

    DNA topoisomerases represent an essential family of DNA processing enzymes and a large number of topoisomerase inhibitors are used clinically for the treatment of various human cancers. Novels drugs are in clinical development both against type I and type II topoisomerases. The book will include basic biochemical and structural reviews for the cancer-relevant... more...

  • RNA Infrastructure and Networksby Lesley J. Collins

    Springer 2011; US$ 219.00

    RNAs form complexes with proteins and other RNAs. The RNA-infrastructure represents the spatiotemporal interaction of these proteins and RNAs in a cell-wide network. "RNA Infrastructure and Networks" brings together these ideas to illustrate the scope of RNA-based biology, and how connecting RNA mechanisms is a powerful tool to investigate... more...

  • Adenosine Deaminases Acting on RNA (ADARs) and A-to-I Editingby Charles E. Samuel

    Springer 2011; US$ 219.00

    The objective of this "CTMI" volume is to provide readers with a foundation for understanding what ADARs are and how they act to affect gene expression and function. It is becoming increasingly apparent that ADARs may possess roles not only as enzymes that deaminate adenosine to produce inosine in RNA substrates with double-stranded character,... more...

  • Seleniumby Dolph L. Hatfield; Marla J. Berry; Vadim N. Gladyshev

    Springer 2011; US$ 179.00

    Many health benefits have been attributed to selenium that include preventing various forms of cancer (e.g., colon cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer and liver cancer), heart disease and other cardiovascular and muscle disorders, inhibiting viral expression, delaying the progression of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) in human immunodeficiency... more...

  • Activation and Detoxification Enzymesby Chang-Hwei Chen

    Springer 2011; US$ 189.00

    Humans are exposed to foreign compounds such as drugs, household products and environmental chemicals by swallowing or breathing. Also, food is considered a foreign compound. Such foreign compounds can be non-essential and non-functional to life, and commonly are referred to as xenobiotics. Some xenobiotics are not toxic; however, many of them are... more...
